The thirty-fourth day was held before Sunday, May 12.The Dutch Championship takes champion and vice to next edition of the Champions League. Initially, only the third-placed player would have a place in the Europa League, but as Ajax won the Dutch Cup and takes place in the Champions League, their place in the Europa League was relegated to fourth place in the Eredivisie.Thus, a third place in the Europa League is still in dispute in the play-off to be played between teams that finish in the fifth and eighth place. The lowering zone is formed by the last three places. The worst of them goes straight to Second Division. The other two playoff contests still allow you to try to escape the sticking.

With 29 points (eight wins, five draws and 20 losses), he occupies the seventeenth – penultimate – position in the standings table of the Dutch Championship.There is no way to get past Breda, flashlight and downgraded to Second Division. You can even beat Excelsior, sixteenth with an extra point. However, he will have to play the repechage in an attempt to avoid the decline.Thus, the encounter with the virtual Dutch champion will serve, at the most, as training for the next duels.

Of the 48 points that he played in his stadium, he had 21 (six wins, three draws and seven losses) having scored 24 goals and suffered the same number of goals.
Ajax were in an extremely comfortable position to put another cup in their gallery on Wednesday after a 4-1 win over Utrecht in Amsterdam on Sunday. He counted with PSV’s collaboration, the only team with a chance to take the title, which he lost away from home to AZ Alkamaar 1-0.Reaching 83 points (27 wins, two draws and four losses), he opened three points ahead of the vice-leader. In order for the situation to be reversed, not only would they have to lose the game on Wednesday as PSV would need to beat Heracles in Eindhoven and also reverse a 14-goal draw deficit, which is the first criterion for tie breakerIn practice, the meeting is a mere formality for Ajax to make the ‘double’ since they have already won the Dutch Cup title. The team should not count for the match with midfielder Carel Eiting (seven games in the 2018/2019 version of the Dutch Championship without a goal) and striker David Neres (29 games, eight goals), which are delivered to the care of the department doctor.
